Please Stay Back Tinubu Loves You – VP, Shettima Tells Nigerian Doctors



Vice President Kashim Shettima has appealed to Nigerian doctors to stay back in the country and help the Tinubu-led administration salvage the nation.

Shettima made the appeal on Tuesday, June 11, when the National Executive Committee of the Nigerian Medical Association, led by its newly elected President, Prof. Bala Audu, paid him a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa.

In a statement released on Wednesday, June 12, by his Senior Special Assistant on Media & Communications, Stanley Nkwocha, the Vice President cautioned against the recent surge in a phenomenon colloquially referred to in the local parlance as the “Japa Syndrome”.

He urged them to resist the temptation of absconding without flashing a ray of hope as President Bola Tinubu has their interest at heart. Shettima also said that Tinubu has a lot of empathy for medical doctors who have chosen to stay back at home despite juicy offers abroad.

He said;

“Remain steadfast and resist the temptation of offering their services in foreign lands. In President Tinubu, you have an ally who will stand by you at all times.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has Nigerian doctors at heart. He has a lot of empathy for our medical doctors who have opted to stay put at home, not for lack of offers.”

On the challenges facing them in the country, VP Shettima commended the giant strides of Nigerian doctors, and their sacrifices in the service of the nation, especially in repositioning healthcare delivery.
